Mrs Beasley's Sampler Quilt

I love quilt books and magazines and one of my favourite magazines is written by Leanne Beasley of Leanne's House.  It is called 'Vignette'. I have just received the latest issue of this beautiful magazine which features a fabulous quilt project in it which I have decided I simply MUST make!

 
It is a sampler quilt designed by Leanne  (Mrs Beasley) which starts in issue 10 of 'Vignette' and continues over the following three issues (11, 12 and 13).  In issue 10 all the cutting instructions for the sampler quilt are given, so I recently spent a very productive afternoon deciding which fabrics I was going to use for the quilt and then cutting out all the pieces and sorting them into labelled bags so that I know which pieces are for which block.

 
Leanne also gives some great tips and ideas on how to journal your quilt.  I liked this idea and, I have started my journal by sticking in a small square of each of the fabrics that I have decided to use.  It is a useful thing to do because I can see that it will help me to keep track of which fabric is being used for what.

 
The fabrics I am using for the quilt are all Tilda fabrics, similar to those which Leanne suggested.  Only Block One is featured in issue 10 of 'Vignette' and the finished block pictured looks lovely, so I am VERY excited to see how the quilt develops!

PS: Leanne has also added some very useful hints and tips for making the quilt on her blog, so do take a look if you are thinking of making it.
